One-of-a-kind smooth and light Bourbon.

Curt Richardson, a legendary businessman whom you might know for Otterbox, is a true Bourbon lover. In 2013, he decided to translate his passion into an amber liquid he could call his own. He paired up with the industry veteran, Master Distiller Greg Metze (who used to work for MGP in Indiana) and started producing. Their flagship Bourbon is a careful blend of three Straight Bourbons from three distilleries in New York, Colorado and Indiana, but they are all based on the same recipe. Someday, Old Elk Bourbon will be created in Fort Collins in its entirety. The Bourb’ goes through a proprietary proofing process called “Slow Cut” where water is added to the Spirit slowly over the period of several weeks. The idea is to preserve as much congeners (magic aroma-and-taste substances) as possible.

Old Elk Bourbon is a premium Spirit that stands out. To create a light, sweet and smooth Bourbon, Master Magician Metze lowered the content of corn to the legal minimum of 51%, and amped up malted barley to 34% (sweetness) and rye to 15% (spice). “Smooth” is often thrown around with Whiskey, but the slow proofing process and Metze’s mash bill really do something magical to the Bourbon.
